Lynn Kohl, a Vietnam Veteran Nurse who served near Pleiku, delivered a special copy of Diane Carlson Evans’s new book, “Healing Wounds” to The Highground. Diane Carlson Evans is a former nurse in the United States Army during the Vietnam War and the founder of the Vietnam Women’s Memorial located at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
Diane signed the book with this very special inscription for The Highground: “Dedicated to the good people at The Highground who stand sentry in tribute to the Veterans honored there. You will find in this book the story of Rodger Brodin’s work with me on our first proposed sculpture, “the Nurse”, which proudly stands at the Highground—its perfect resting place. Thank you for “guarding” her and educating your visitors about the women of the Vietnam War. I salute you. ~Diane Carlson Evans”
The Highground is mentioned on page 243 of “Healing Wounds”. The Staff and Board of Directors thank Diane and Lynn for their service and for remembering The Highground. They look forward to seeing them both again.
Copies of “Healing Wounds” will be available for sale in The Highground Gift Shop at a later date.
